Review of Wedrockers; Rafa Ibanez, David Jouse, and Fer Juaristi
Posted 16 March 2010 - 03:12 PM
Rafa, David and Fer were with us for 3 days, so they were able to capture so many of the events surrounding our wedding. They came with us on an excursion to the Mayan Ruins at Coba and Gran Cenote. This was a really great opportunity for our guests and us to get comfortable being photographed. Not to mention, we got some really great pictures. They also saved the day being spanish speakers as we had a van driver that didn't speak any english.
That night, David and Rafa came up to my room to do a boudoir shoot while all my girlfriends and I were hanging out drinking champagne. I was a little uncomfortable at first, but they were really fun and joking around with everyone, so it ended up being great. I think it actually made our night, and I've seen a preview of some of the shots - I know I'm going to end up with a beautiful album.
The morning of our wedding, Fer went along with all the guys deep sea fishing. It was great for me to be able to see what I missed, and we ended up with some absolutely priceless photos of my stepson. David (my husband) said that he actually didn't know what he would have done without Fer because the boat was late and he was able to call and get everything straightened out with the captain. People were starting to get pretty stressed out about all the confusion, and Fer's upbeat personality and positivity really helped calm everyone down.
I never really thought I'd like a lot of getting ready shots, but those are some of my favorites. There are a few of my mother in law and stepson, that I absolutely love. And I treasure them especially because I didn't get to see those moments as they happened, I was just too busy.
The session we did before the wedding actually flew by because we were having so much fun. We ended up getting to the ceremony area about 20 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, and the wedding coordinator was trying to get us to get started early ( I think she got to go home after our wedding or something). Anyways, i started to tell her we weren't ready, and would be starting at the scheduled time, but Fer took over and I was so grateful. The last thing I wanted to do 20 minutes before my wedding was get into an argument with our wedding coordinator.
After our reception dinner, they had prepared a slide show of the pics taken so far. It was such a crazy moment when we got to see these. Everyone was crying and hugging. It kind of brought out more emotion than when we were actually living those moments. After that, pretty much every single one of our un-married guests told us they would be hiring them for their weddings!
We did the TTD the next day in Puerto Morelos. It was a lot of fun, and the pics we ended up with are so great! Even more than that, the guys told us they wanted to challenge themselves by using only their iphones and toy cameras. I think it just really showcases their talent that you can't even tell the difference between those shots and ones taken with super fancy cameras.
Anyways, this is getting really long. I just really want to do their work justice. We are absolutely in love with all the photos we've seen so far, they're so unique and beautiful! We've had about 20 people (and that's about how many have seen them - we're saving them as a surprise for our AHR) tell us that they are the best wedding pictures they've ever seen. I really think the key was having all three of these guys. Individually, they're super talented and have this eye for capturing those moments that bring back the same feeling as when you were living it every time you see the picture. But, I think together, all their different styles compliment each other and the end result is a super complete 'not a moment was missed' collection of photos. Not only that, but their personalities made it so easy for all of us to get comfortable and we really ended up having a lot of fun with them.
Here is a collection that they put together for us, it's about 200 pics, so give it a minute to load...
